setup.exe version 2.427 - Serious Upgrade Issues

I did some upgrades to my cygwin environment about a week or so ago. After the fact I started getting messages regarding unsuccessful startup of sshd.

I also installed Microsoft Visual C++ during this same timeframe. (may or may not matter)

So today I went back to the cygwin setup to see if I could straigten out the problem. I did a "Download from the Internet", and selected the OpenSSH package under the NET family of packages. This indicated it would be upgrading the version from 3.9p1-1 to 3.9p1-2. So far everything is fine. I noticed that some other packages appeared to be upgraded automatically. I continued, and went through the download process without any problems at all.

Subsequently, I went in and performed the upgrade as "Install from Local Directory". After making sure that OpenSSH was selected, I clicked through to run the upgrade. This is where the problems started.

A new popup-window displayed saying:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!

Program: C:\downloads\software\cygwin\setup.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I also checked the base window and found it stopped at:

Cygwin Setup
   This page displays the progress of the download or installation.

Checking MD5 for _update-info-dir-00228-1

Progress bars show no progress. Disk bar shows only about 1/3 of the way.

The lines of equal signs above indicate the beginning and endiing of the title bar of the popup window.

KDE is installed on the system - Version 3-3.1.4-3. But it appears that the download process brought a "new" version down - 3.1.4-3. This seemed odd - because the appearance is that the package versioning has been redone.

The setup.log and setup.log.full files both show the download, but don't show anything new since on any of the attempts I've made to install.

In any case, I'd like to be able to complete this upgradde, but I'm not sure which way to go right now - deleted a good working KDE to replace it with something that looks like it may be the same thing? Zap it all and start over? I'm not sure.

I would appreciate any assistance that might be provided. I don't have a clue where to start with this. Suggestions please.
